Another Win For Boy Owner [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
Another Win i For Boy Owner MELBOURNE, Satur- day.-Six-year-old Jimmy Thompson listened atten- tively to every word of the broadcast description of the Merson Cooper Stakes at Caulfield to-day. As the announcer told of Lady Pirouette's convincing win, the household at the Widden Stud at Scone con- gratulated him. For the young boy ofiis the winner, which he bred and leased I to his tather, Frank Thompson, and Mrs. A. F. Wilson during the [filly's racing caieer. Congratulations arc more orí less commonplace to Jimmy. He| has owned horses since he was two. The late Mr. A. W. Thomp- son, Jimmy's grandfather, gave him Hecuba, Lady Pirouette's dam. Heijuba is a half-sister to Ajax. The stud was tempted to sell Hecuba's foal by Whirlaway, but Jimmy's father decided the filly had great value at the stud, apart from her prospects as a race- horse. So she was bought in at the sales in Sydney. Sydney Visit Lady Pirouette has now won foin successive races. She will um in the Sires' Produce Sta...

Boyd was admitted to Sydney Hospital with a probable fractured skull. * A post-morlem examination will be held to-morrow.
N.Z. STAYER ON WAY [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
NÍ. STAYER ON WAY MELBOURNE, Saturday. -New Zealand stayer, Bruce, with trainer L. J. Ellis in charee.'will arrive in Sydney from Wellington in the Wanganella on Monday. Bruce has 9-6 in the Doncaster Handicap and Sydney Cup. His mission is the Cup. Bi uce's near foreleg, which he injured in a race last month, has recovered. ' However, there is still a slight filling in the leg, which may give him trouble in Sydney. A Sydney lightweight, prob- ably J. Thompson or N. Sell- wood, will probably be ap- proached to ride Bruce in the Sydney Cup if he strikes his best New Zealand form.
Did Not See Cognac Win [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
Did Not See Cognac Win MELBOURNE, Saturday. -Sydney trainer W. Kelso was not in Melbourne to "saddle*?' Cognac for the Hawksburn Handicap at Caulfield to-day. Stable foreman B. Woods did the job and had the ¿ttisfaciion in seeing the gelding, compara- tively neglected in the betting, win comfortably from Heliofly and Our Title. He will return to Sydney to- morrow. Most punters supported the Newmarket fancies, Despatch Case and .Count Cosmo. Cognac is not engaged in the Newmarket Handicap. His mis- sion in Melbourne was the Oak- leigh Plate last Saturday, in which he was never prominent. Desptach Case ran only moder- ately to-day, but Count Cosmo, was close up behind the placc gctteis, and pulled up soundly.
India Looking To Prohibition [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
India Looking j To Prohibition From MICHAEL DAVIDSON IN NEW DELHI 1-t-. F DIA will soon become one boundless Sunday afternoon if,the zealots of the Congress Party have their way. Prohibition is resolutely spread- ing outwards from Madras, head- quarters of Hindu purity. There is agitation for bans on smoking, card-playing, racing-on anything that seems worldly, wicked, or Western. Censors are busy purging the cinema of kisses, bottles, and bed- rooms. In Parliament, some extremists have even demanded the suppres- sion of the vice of tea-drinking. It will be a puritan's paradise, needing a lot of enforcement officers. At present Madras is the only province which has total prohibi- tion, and it is costing the Provin- cial treasury about £12 million sterling in loss of revenue. Confirmed "addicts" in Madras may get a doctor's certificate allowing them a "medicinal" ration, and foreigners can drink what they like. Bombay, whose Home Minister, Morarji Desai, under the slogan "the night w...

Planters In Front Line Needed More Aid From OUR LONDON OFFICE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
Planters In Front Line Needed More Aid I- Il -I ? - . - From OUR LONDON OFFICE WEARY planters from Malaya, home in Eng- land from their front-line fight, are giving a solemn warning to the British Gov eaiment. These men represent Britain's top dollar-earning industry (in 1947 953,000 tons of rubber passed through Singapore, and 456,000 tons of it went to the United States). As rubber estates continue to feel the scorch of arson and European planters fall to their deaths at the hands of bandits they see the end of the British regime in Malaya unless the Gov- ernment realises how desperate is the race for time. They are tired men, these "whisky-swilling" planters of pre- war fiction, who have for months been facing death hourly, and who are determined to arouse public opinion to Britain's danger. . . . WHAT they fear is that the planters and miners who are staying on in Malaya may crack. The bridging of the dollar gap rests perhaps more than any thing else on the 2,000 planters and mi...

THE SUNDAY BOOK CLUB The War Of The War-Memoirs [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
THE SUNDAY BOOK CLUB I The War Of The War-Memoirs By COLIN BINGHAM I ONCE met an American soldier, wounded by a bomb from his own Air Force, who wanted to survive the war for a particular reason. It was not, as some might sup- pose, to have coffee and dough- nuts with, his old grandma. Nor was it to fish in the creek where all the big ones got away when he was a boy. Nor yet to see the great White Way in Broadway just once more. He wanted desperately to live so that he could read all the books in which the sons of bitches would explain how they won the war!-Or how they would have won ifif they had only been given their heads at the right moment. . IF that soldier is not dead he * must be having the time of his life. For hardly a month passes without an addition to the library ' of war explanation, accusation or plain "apologia." (See list at foot of article.) And since modern war is far too dangerous to be entrusted to soldiers, any reasonably good library of war memoirs should in- ...

MODEL AIRCRAFT NOW ASSEMBLE AND FLY YOUR "WREN" MODEL PLANE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Herald — 6 March 1949
MODEL AIRCRAFT NOW ASSEMBLE AND FLY YOUR "WREN" MODEL PLANE By JIM FULLARTON HERE are final details on how to build your "Wren" plane. , The undercarriage and com bined tail hook-skid are both bent from 20-gauge piano wire. The undercarriage slips over the motor stick at the front and the tail hook-skid is pushed into the wood at the rear, both being firmly bound and cemented. Wheels are retained by bending up the ends of the axles. Then hook the propeller shaft through the bearing, giving the washers a dab of vaseline. Tie 24in of Un flat rubber in a loop and attach it between the hooks. It should be slightly slack, not stretched. Now find the balancing point of the whole assembly (less wing) and cement the wing 1 l/8in forward of that point. Note the l/8in thick block un- der the front of the wing. This gives the necessary "angle of in- cidence." ?jMOW for the test flights, for *? ^ which you should choose a calm day and a fair-sized field. Wind the propeller with one finger in a ...
